Response from festival:
You requested us support with a Visa issue. We are a small festival, that do not provide such kind of support. We are a team of volunteer and are unable to provide all the documentation that is necessary to make invitations to Iranian Filmmakers. The Festival granted you a fee waiver and your film was selected semi-finalist, but seems nor being able to assist you with a Visa make us a fake Festival. Very sad that this is your opinion.
Response from festival:
You assisted to only one screening, the one with local filmmakers, where of course they came with all their friends and teams. But there was more audience as just more the filmmakers. The idea was to screen them all local films together to bring the filmmakers closer, let them know each other. That actually worked, and except from your side we had no other complaints. Hope you are still happy with the Selection of your film and the Award.
